One of the region’s leading care providers and registered charity, The Fremantle Trust, in partnership with Buckinghamshire County Council and Housing Solutions, has developed a £4.5 million nursing and dementia care home in Chesham.
Chesham Leys, will provide care and support for 62 people who require nursing or nursing dementia care. The three-storey purpose built home, features spacious rooms all with en suite facilities, separate lounge and dining areas, onsite hair salon and landscaped gardens.
Chesham Leys is the last of eight care homes to be built under the ‘Project Care’ partnership agreement, designed to significantly improve the quality of accommodation for older people and people with learning disabilities across Buckinghamshire.
Patricia Birchley, cabinet member for health and wellbeing at Buckinghamshire County Council, said: “I’m delighted to see the completion of Project Care. Having visited all the care homes in the project, I’ve seen first-hand how working in partnership with Fremantle and Housing Solutions has given our residents such wonderful homes and facilities as well as a first-class service to very vulnerable people.”
Chesham Leys will employ around 80 staff. Vacancies will include management, nursing, care, housekeeping, kitchen, activity coordination and administration roles.
Sue Green, director of operations at the Trust, said: “This is a very exciting time for Fremantle, with the opportunity to add to our existing network of care homes across the region, to provide care for more people and to complete the Project Care agreement.”
